Plush 1940s vintage vibes pulse through this cool lounge. Soft maroon leather banquettes and gilded mirrors line the walls, while the sleek mahogany bar shines under glitzy period chandeliers (think a Swingers-type ambiance). The beautiful crowd mingles expertly, while ever-so-fashionable servers zip around in Alexander McQueen-designed uniforms.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Designer casual–you’ll need an effortlessly cool, of-the-moment get-up to get through the door here. We’d wear a glam (but not too flashy) little dress and trendy sandals.
GO HERE WITH
A date; friends; clients or colleagues
Young, tanned trendsetters. Celebs enjoy coming here, so don’t be surprised when you spot 'em.
WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s deliciously swank–great spot for casual schmoozing, be it on business or a first date.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The bar staff needs to take their “trendy-and-I-know-it” attitude down a notch.
GOOD TO KNOW
In case you need to dodge paparazzi, there’s a secret VIP entrance. Valet parking is available.
